To me, the point is that _any_ GPU use when a CPU-only format is invoked is a bug. There should be zero GPU memory allocation, and zero load on the GPUs. > The easiest solution is to close these pointers and reopen them only > inside format init(). Can't we do all initial "opening" of anything GPU-related in the format's init(), if the format is GPU-enabled, and not any sooner? Perhaps there's some implementation difficulty that I am missing.
